bazelio, to me there is no "next best". I haven't heard one yet. There is top AQ and everything else. No cable that I ever auditioned gives the depth, authority, articulation and accuracy of bass that AQ is capable of. Solid-core PSS and PSC+ that they use in their top designs seems to make all the difference. Multistrand conductors and inferior metal quality of everything else I ever auditioned can not come even close, let alone rival AQ. Same goes for highs: they are natural silk with AQ! By comparison, everything else sounds murky and muddy at the bottom and the top. Every time I audition a system, I come home dissapointed. And it's always the same thing: bass sucks and highs are "dirty" and all wrong. Interestingly, not all is bad in the mid range. I've auditioned quite a few systems with glorious mid range. But to me top quality bass is soooo important that I see no other alternatives to AQ.
Dragon has never been (and never will be) all silver. It is roughly 70% PSS and 30% PSC+. Firebird is the opposite: around 70% PSC+ and 30% PSS. And of course Hurricane is 100% PSC+. That's all there is to that.Hello guys,
Before AQ introduced Firebird power cord that is described now as a mix of PSS and PSC+, the Dragon was described as a mix of PSS and PSC+.
Now the Dragon is described as PSS only.
Does it mean that:
Older Dragon became a Firebird now and we have a new Dragon all silver?
Can anybody check it and clarify here? Thanks.

Don't know why they do this, but they do. And not only with respect to Dragon PC. But with many other cables. Annoys me personally. It seem that no one is perfect. But AQ top cables still sound best!Thanks for your reply. I wonder why AQ describes Dragon on their website and pricelist as PSS.
Clearly, you listened to a fake Hurricane. Genuine Hurricane sounds nothing like you describe.Sorry for my English.
I got Hurricane for about 2-3 years never like it traded for Niagara 5000 2days ago. It make my system sound too fast and too much midrange too edgy. I think it kinda over price cable.
When I trade it for Niagara 5000 dealer give me Dragon ,Audience and Jps super aluminata for a demo in my system. The Dragon was just Wow. So relax ,wide ,detail no edgy like Hurricane and just enough bass for my system. I think it worth the price.
But after fun swapping cables for a few days ,I always came back to Tellurium Q Statement. I think Dragon(source) for phono and statement for amplifier would be perfect for me.
bazelio, what's your point? Are you trying to draw me into a useless debate with you? Don't try because you will lose. I've been using top AQ cables in my system for 2 decades and head them in dozens of systems. I know what genuine top AQ cable will introduce into any system. So let's leave it at that. End of discussion.And some things do.
